    Floor Rack for DH Bikes

    Hey guys, I'm trying to find a good floor rack to put my bikes in to clean up my garage. I'm picturing something I can roll the tire into (like the bike racks at schools), but able to accommodate wider tires & large disc brakes. Figured this was the best place to ask. Anyone have anything like this?

    Thanks

    You could easily build one out of wood or PVC pipe.

    I'll likely end up doing this, but figured if I can find something for $20-30 it'd be easier to just go that route. I've seen a few 2 bike racks in this price range, but they didn't look like they'd clear disc rotors.

    I have one of these. I adjusted the spec's a little bit for wider tires, but it won't fit my nevegal 2.5. It's really easy to change how you want, and cost me less than $15 to make.

    I picked up one of the Lowes floor 2 bike stands and didn't have any issues with the brake rotor. If you back the rear tire in I did notice that depending on where your derailleur is it might hit, but I just adjusted it accordingly. For the price I couldn't beat the convenience and ability to hold 2 of my bikes. Plus if it doesn't work out, bring it back.

    Thanks, that looks pretty easy & nice. I'll also check out the Lowe's rack.

    I made one of these and modified the specs to fit a larger tire.

    I also went and measured the width of the tire spacing on the one I got at lowes and its actually 2.5 inches..so you should be all set with a quick, cheap, and easy way to hold up your bikes.
